Both lifeboats launched after monk takes ill on Caldey Island . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat Haydn Miller was launched with Paramedics aboard at 1.20pm on Wednesday 7 November after a monk took ill on Caldey Island.

The lifeboats were soon at Caldey, where the casualty was already waiting on the jetty. After being assessed by the Paramedics, he was taken aboard the Haydn Miller via the inshore lifeboat, for the trip back to Tenby.

Due to the state of the tide at Caldey, there was insufficient water to allow the larger lifeboat alongside the jetty, so the inshore lifeboat was also launched to assist in transporting people to and from the island.

On arrival back at the station at 1.45pm, the monk was taken aboard the ambulance for further checks before being brought to hospital.
